MSI Wind U200 Leak

MSI's first true ultraportable to use Intel's CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) platform has likely been leaked a day ahead of its actual launch. Put into the Wind netbook family, the U200 as found by Engadget will be closer to a notebook with a CULV processor (presumed to be the 1.2GHz Celeron M 723) and a 12-inch, 1366x768 LED-backlit display. It will also have much more in base specifications than netbooks with 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive and GMA 4500 video that can drive HD video playback.

The system will be light at 3 pounds but is potentially more limited than some higher end netbooks, sharing the same 3-cell battery as a typical Wind and likely omitting built-in 3G for at least the initial model. Pricing hasn't accompanied the leak but is estimated to sit at or near $700 in the US.
